    I've seen this happen with Intel HD drivers, you can click through one / a few photos fine but after a few it crashes out.

    We tried the latest Intel HD drivers (this was about 2 months back) from Intel download site on a system and it didn't solve it but after installing the ones found via Windows Update, photo viewer worked fine.

    So I would say check your VGA drivers and try above if your not on latest and see if that helps.
